Leonardo FF

Big, Bay, Beautiful, Hanoverian Show Horse!

How would you like some big time, real horse fun this year? Here is your ticket to it all!

Leonardo FF is a 2012 17.2 hand Liberty Gold gelding that is a brilliant mover, a sensible but sensitive, thinking and loving gelding that you deserve to own. He has shown himself to like going to shows, liking the extra attention from people big and small, and the excitement of new horses and having different people come to his stall, walking around and seeing the different locations. He also likes going on trail rides, and galloping out in the fields with a rider, and is not a problem about coming back down no matter which direction you are going. Leo is the second of a many repeated breeding that we have done with this mare and Liberty Gold because crossing with this stallion gives us such an excellent foal and horse. Our latest foal, a full brother to Leonardo was the Gold Medal foal at the Spruce Glen Farm Inspection held on September 11, 2019. Ludwig Christman, the Chief Inspector from Germany encouraged us to keep him as a stallion prospect. Leo could have probably been a stallion prospect himself, but there are just too many stallions and we do not want to handle stallions at our farm.

Leo is sound and has no soundness issues. He is ridden barefoot, and does not need to wear shoes. He has enjoyed excellent health, but had a snotty nose once when all the horses at the training stable got it and it was going around. He has his teeth floated every few years by hand (not using the drill equipment) and usually falls asleep. He also gets regular massages when he is working, and may get occasional chiropractic adjustment when he is in training. He comes home for a few months in the winter. He is good to work on for all services. He can be easily handled by the vet.

Leo would be a perfect horse for a professional rider, or a serious amateur, but he is very uncomplicated to ride, and an advanced student with an involved trainer could possibly do well with Leo. He is not difficult to ride, and a steady rider can do well with him. He just has always done well showing, and placed well even with small mistakes. Marie Milliman has trained him to have such an even and steady cadence. He has incredibly steady and relaxed gaits, making him comfortable and pleasurable to ride.
